(Reuters) - Russia will not renew a decades-old agreement with Washington on dismantling nuclear and chemical weapons when it expires next year, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying on Wednesday.
The death of the 1991 agreement, which had been renewed twice, is the latest in a series of hitches in relations between the United States and Russia and casts doubt on the future of the much-vaunted "reset" in relations between the Cold War-era foes.
"The basis of the program is an agreement of 1991 which, by virtue of the time when it was conceived, the way it was worked out and prepared, does not meet very high standards. The agreement doesn't satisfy us, especially considering new realities," Interfax quoted him as saying. . .

Bend US over further, you mean?
Obama also revealed where our missiles are and let them tour facilities.
MAKE NUKES, NOT WAR.
Any US nuclear or chemical weapons that are scheduled to be dismantled should be put on hold for review and consequently a reversal to US weapons disarmament in light of Pooti-Poot’s decision.
[So was this announcement made before or after Turkey forced down a plane from Moscow to Syria?]
I don’t know but I would guess Turkey got the intelligence tip from the U.S. or NATO and Russia is pissed.
Yes,an important factor in the collapse of the original USSR was that the West spent them into oblivion.That won't work today....today's USSR is awash in oil dollars...euros....pounds....yen.
In what way could this possibly help sway independent voters to Obama.
It’s like they want Obama out, too.
HoneyBamster don’t care. In a few more months he’ll be in paradise bangin’ downlow Honolulu fagasso stuff. Mahallo! And Manchelle will be out shoppin’.
Reagan ran the Soviets into the ground with our economy and pressure in the arms arena. They could not compete. Now, Obama has neutered our economy and wrecked our military and Putin is ready to call the arms deal off.
Circumstantial evidence of treason??? Well, there is no doubt in my mind. . . .
Well I would not go so far to 'credit' US for the 'tip', I am not sure our 'intelligence' is itself in working order. I say this after watching the hearing today where the blame for blaming a stupid video for spontaneous demonstrations that got 4 Americans killed was placed at the door of our 'intelligence'.
Russia made out big time over this 'arms agreement with US' since 1991. I sure would like to see the price tag it cost US to help them coral all their weapons of mass destruction... It will be interesting to see if Turkey releases photos of what they found on that plane from Moscow to Syria.
Putin relieves himself on Obama.
I don't think their actions are predicated on the US election.
Their interest is Russia.
They know we are weak at this point in time and, thanks to Obama, it will be some time before our financial power is restored, if ever.
If Obama wins they know they have a pisant wimp to deal with.
If Romnmey wins they know he will need to concentrate on trying to repair the economic damage Obama is leaving him.
Great picture of Obama’s FORWARD Foreign Policy. Thanks!
Oh darn, Russia is known for their quality instruments and such...or not.
